This Week In Dean Athletics (March 12-18)

What You Missed:

  • Baseball- The Bulldogs started their season slate with a nine game road trip to Washington D.C. and Myrtle Beach, S.C. Dean finished 3-5-1 during the stretch, defeating Galludet 10-7 on opening day, and registering two late game comeback victories over Penn State- Beaver and Valley Forge.  Freshman infielder Dakari Cox (Needham, Mass.) currently leads the squad with a .500 batting average.  He has belted 13 hits in 20 at bats and has driven in 10 runs.  Alex Belanger (Southbridge, Mass.), Seth Von Schmidt (Darien, Conn.), and Jason Bottone (Derby, Conn.) all have a win on the mound, with Bottone currently placing second on the team with a 6.94 ERA. 
  • Softball- The softball team also traveled south to start their season, playing eight games in Myrtle Beach over a four day span.  The Bulldogs struggled out of the gate, giving up over 10 runs per game and only batting .169 as a team.  Junior Alexis Brown (Taunton, Mass.) leads Dean with a .381 average, registering eight hits on 21 at-bats. Karissa Menzinger (Centereach, N.Y.) and Ali Nelson (Candia, N.H.) have split the duties on the hill. 
  • Men's Lacrosse- The Bulldogs won two games last week to improve their record to 3-1 on the season.  Dean defeated Johnson State 16-1 on Sunday before following it up with a 10-6 victory over Rivier.  Colin Hinrichs (Greenwich, Conn.) and Anthony Trasacco (Cheshire, Conn.), and Brody Fredericks (Weare, N.H.) continue to shine from the Bulldogs attack.  Hinrichs has 11 goals and five assists while Trasacco has scored nine and assisted on seven.   Fredericks has had success orchestrating the offense from X, scoring nine goals and dishing out eight helpers.
  • Men's Volleyball- Only playing one match last week, Men's Volleyball defeated Southern Vermont 3-0. For the season, Diondre Gomes (Fairhaven, Mass.) leads the squad with 216 kills and Joel Carmona (Lawrence, Mass.) follows with 137.  Carmona leads in digs with 119 and Bobby Tetrault (Mattapoissett, Mass.) has 321 assists.
